The Windsor

Hotel Windsor

If your scared of entering a dark dingy place that may or may not have undesirables loitering around the front, no problem. Once your in the front doors keep your back to the wall. I've never seen anything go down, but you may feel safe for your first few visits.
Cheap beer and great jazz...nice sacrafice. Impress your new girlfriend and show her how brave you are!
Come on down. Land of the free and home of the drunk.
PS-must get along well with Natives.

U Otter Stop Inn

U Otter Stop Inn

No windows, the same toothless drunks in there at noon as at midnight, gross mural on the exterior depicting creepy-faced buxom she-otters and sleazy he-otters merrily socializing with a pint or two, and to top it off, it's supremely dank and non-descriptly awful inside the bar.

Cheap liquor and beer are the specialties of the house.

Geno's

Geno's

Deep under the surface of Portland lies the famous Geno's. The only way in is through a black door and down a narrow flight of stairs. Once down there, there is no escape, no help, as your cell phone has no service. A band will be playing loud punk music, ideally. The beer is no frills. The mixed drinks are strong. The bartender is trashed.
The lady's room has seen some action. The green room has seen more.
The most famous true tale of Geno's is GG Allen took a shit on the stage, and Geno himself kicked him out.

Grand Union

Grand Union

drunken bums, street folk trying to sell you things (from sunglasses to electric beard trimmers), rowdy natives, $1.50 draft, live country bands every night, ladies and theyre johns...on hastings.
in fact, there is nothing classy about this place.

to quote the vancouver courier:
"It's 3 o'clock on a Wednesday afternoon and tables at the Grand Union Hotel on Hastings Street, three blocks west of Main, are almost full."

Kings Bar and Grill

Kings is the home of the pickled brainered!
people fuck in the bathrooms, condoms on the floor put out cigarette's on the floor and maybe a on a mild nite you might get the chance to pick glass outta your head or ass! and a free titty dance from the barmaid who is drunk and missing a few teeth. check it out!

De Ster

Be prepared for some loud music before entering this place as it's official subtitle is 'Home Of Metal History'. You can hear anything from Manowar to Mayhem and from Rammstein to Morbid Angel. Run by Johnny and his wife Mieke this place is one of the best hangouts in Holland. It opens between 22:00 and 23:00 at night and it closes at about 04:00 am on regular days but on friday and especially saturday it doesn't close until Johnny's bored. And he doesn't get bored quick when there's drunk people to talk to!

The beer is fairly cheap compared to the surrounding bars in the centre of Groningen. Order bottles though! Read more »

Cal's

Cal's

This is a true sleazy bar in the heart of the Loop. The paint is peeling off of the walls, the mirror behind the bar (where it isn't busted out) hasn't been cleaned since before the war, their "patio furniture" is tables from the bar moved to the sidewalk, the bathroom is cleaned by a homeless man who is paid in wine (so you can imagine the quality job there), the glassware is murky and the food gives you indigestion right away.

On the upside, if you want to become a regular somewhere, it is easy here. Show up, drink, shut up and then leave. Low-key is hardly the word. The staff is no-nonsense, but friendly. And where else in the Loop can you get a beer for under $2.00.

Cal's...an experience for all who have the guts to do it.

Random bars

Frederick's Music Lounge

Frederick's Music Lounge

Smoky, cozy, cheap, basement tavern with plenty of dirty lingerie (and socks) hanging from the rafters.
Ladies room is over by the tree near the cigarette machine. Quality live music five nights a week. I go there every night. Help me.

Ex & POP

Ex n Pop

The history of Ex & Pop ist a hystory of continuity in a world of changes. The true successor of the in the early "Risiko", one of the few get-stoned-high- drunk-dropout-and-pay-the-other-day-punk -bars in West Berlin.
After two moves all in the schoeneberg area, still a "collective" ( only god nows hu dus pay), they moved into the former KOB on Potsdamer Str.
The area around you can call a "mini inner city light", but the hustlers hookers punters junkies are on the decline, there will be a renaicance of the whole aerea in the upcomming future.

But till then: the liver-yell continues

!!Live Acts!!

Ernesto's

blaadjetijden.png

This is a great place! In the beginning of the evening Ernesto's is a Mexican restaurant, but after 22.00 it changes in a wild club. Especially during concerts the crowd goes wild, and so do the bands!! The Slackers, Jaya The Cat, The Movement, Green Hornet, The Staggers, The Paladins and The Celluloid Gurus were there before you..

1881 Club

l.jpg

This place is right near my house, and in two and half years I've never had the balls to walk in there. Well I dragged some reinforcements with me and took the plunge today. All I can say is, I'm glad I did. Although there are NO SMOKING signs all over the place, everybody is smoking. There's a back room with a pool table, there's those "pay per game" electronic dartboards that are almost certainly busted, and the old style 12 foot wide satellite dish was pulling in some classic NASCAR action on TNT or TNN or something on a projection tv.

Café on the Rocks

On the Rocks is the only way to drink your whiskey!

It's located in the centre of Deventer's very own 'the brink'.

Inside ont he rocks you will find a lot of prostitutes and the whiskey comes with a nice live rockband.

And if you want a good fight, pop a few rounds or want to get popped, only act if you are the man and you will get it.

Ruigoord

ruigoord.jpg

The artistic and cultural roots of Ruigoord go back to the early sixties. Late sixties rolled a wave of innovation over the Western world. This movement became known as the student movement and the hippie and flower power movement.
It was the time of the power to the imagination.
Netherlands had its own local precursors into the Provo movement and the Amsterdam scene artists.
Provo and related groups such as Deskundologisch Laboratory, Insect sect, and the Amsterdam Balloon Company argued since the early sixties artistic and entertaining manner the major social issues of the time at issue. Read more »

Mad Madisons Hotel

What can you say about this place, its open all night, all week and is full of the desperate for a drink.

Also free coldcuts given out at the bar, the cabanosi looks a bit more apealing than half the clientele. Enter at your own peril.

De Doos

De Doos

Supposed to be a student-bar. Yeah, right. They may have student prices, in other words it's cheap, but you won't learn shit in here. Or it should be how to get loaded, pick a fight or pick up a lady. All this in one lesson and you're sure to graduate. The music is mostly from the bullshit-genre but, like I said, the drinks are cheap. They're open on mondays and wednessdays and if you're a bit broad-shouldered or largely impudent you can always enter their so-called private parties at the weekends. They got no real owner, so no worries about the bill, but once in a while you'll be forced to hear out the tragic story of one of the volunteers about how they work so hard and earn so little. Just listen, they will go away. If not, that's the moment to pick that fight. I wish you fun. Read more »

De Benzinebar

benzinebar.jpg

Open on saturday nights only! By the time you get here, you're too drunk to notice the interior.

If my memory serves me right:it's dark, smelly,cheap and there's a car sticking out of the wall.

Open untill you fall down or black out. Don't come here for a quiet drink, people will try to persuade you to have a one night stand.

IMO

imo.jpg

In my opinion IMO is definitely the sleaziest in the northwestern part of italy. On the outside it appears to
be a cheap wine retailer on a dark, non-descriptive square
in a degraded part of town, locked inside a grid of popular housing, a smelly river, a porno-theater.

Au contraire, IMO is open til late nights (sometimes) and the atmosphere is genuine. The drinks are extraordinarily cheap, service is "as is", meaning that ima (the owner's, imo, wife) will stare at you and mechanichally reach for
whatever you were drinking last. No point in asking as she appareantly will not understand and imo himself is too busy playing a game of "scopone".
Last time I checked a glass of wine was still under 20 euro cents and the collection of rare sub-brand liquors was
still intact. Read more »
